Target hits the bull’s-eye this month with the launch of The Shops at Target concept, a new type of partnership that puts the affordable design pen not in the hands of another designer (as with Target’s successful designer collaborations with Missoni, Proenza Schouler and Calypso St. Barth), but in the hands of five very stylish, yet very different, U.S. small specialty stores. San Francisco sweet shop The Candy Store, Aspen’s cool beauty boutique Cos Bar, Miami’s chic shopping destination The Webster, well-curated Connecticut home store Privet House and the Polka Dog Bakery based in Boston are the first boutiques selected to design and curate their own collections of goods, inspired by their unique style and what they stock in their own shops. Prices range from $1 for a colorful Cos Bar nail file to $160 for an online-only Privet House pouf, for a total of nearly 400 exclusive products. What’s on our hot list? Palm-print dresses, scarves and swimsuits by The Webster; old-fashioned candy from the Candy Store; and white-washed woven baskets from Privet House. Let’s shop! target.com.
